KIERAN SHEA’s fiction has appeared in dozens of venues including Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, Thuglit, Dogmatika, Word Riot, Plots with Guns, Beat to a Pulp, Crimefactory, and Needle: A Magazine of Noir well as in some beefy-looking anthologies most of which will make you question the tether of his shiny, red balloon. To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books. Kieran divides his time between 38°58′22.6″N- 76°30′4.17″W and 39.2775° N, 74.5750° W.


Big Game

Yeah, I know. Super Bowl. Big whoop. Whatever. Predicting riots in Baltimore if it falls either way so that'll be cheery. Ugh. More up for this today. With lots of medicinal beers and snacks. I mean, I saw the dirty-birds from western Pennsylvania beat the snot out of Jersey yesterday, and all I'm saying is the Caps have a very tall order on their hands and Holtby better bring his A-game. I'll probably listen to the game on the radio and mute NBC's crappy, sychopantic commentators. I know I'm not the only one who wishes Milbury would just get hit by a bus. Onward.
